Community Audits Australia clients are required to comply with all essential steps of the significant certification standards and the outlined requirements in our Client Service Agreement. The client will need to inform CAA of any changes to their organisation that could potentially affect the quality of the overall product or service. All clients must comply when notified of any changes to Community Audits Australia Services and apply all changes in an efficient matter.
Breadth of certification will be decreased to remove the components not matching the requirements if the client has considerably or continuously failed to meet certification requirements. The contraction will be in line with the obligations of the standard used for certification.
